Durham Brownfields


Welcome to the City of Durham Brownfields Assessment Program website.  Here you will find information about program guidelines, activities and accomplishments. We encourage you to check back regularly to keep informed about Durham’s latest brownfields assessment projects and upcoming milestones. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions for more information on program guidelines and definitions and to explore how the program may benefit a property owner, community organization, or a developer interested in rehabilitating a brownfield property.

Guided by the City’s Strategic Plan, Durham is actively seeking opportunities to engage residents and community organizations that want to understand more about the City’s Brownfields Assessment Program, and to recruit residents to assist with outreach efforts. The City is also seeking property owners and developers interested in revitalizing potential brownfield properties. Attending a Durham Brownfields Community Task Force meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about the City’s brownfields program and to provide feedback. For more information please contact the City of Durham Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
